My World = Rocked

A colleague of mine just rocked my world. Maybe this is common knowledge, but I've been in the dark about this...

Did anyone else know that Billy Crudup, aka Stillwater's Russell Hammond, is the voice of the fucking Mastercard "Priceless" commericals? I seriously cannot believe that. I'm sufficiently rocked.

Leaving your hot-ass girl (and Ace's future wife Mary-Louise Parker) while she's seven months pregnant for Claire Fucking Danes: Apparently priceless.

Dude- As you know, I like MLP just as much (and probably more) than the next guy, but I think that you should have put a little warning next to that link. I'm no prude or nuthin, but that pic is borderline NSFW. And beautiful.

I'm baffled by Billy's decision on this one- clearly CD is a step-down from MLP. And MasterCard is clearly a step-down from Amex.

That picture is from Esquire, so I figured it would be safe for work. Although it is borderline. Sorry folks.

She's so hot and sexy. I just ran to the bathroom for a few minutes.

is your source reliable? can this be confirmed?

i only ask because of the MC commercial our right now where they show you the guy who does the voice, and i'm not so sure it's stillwater's front man.

as for the pic - pretty risky (and risque) but definitely worth it.

Confirmed. From Wednesday's NY Times:

Since the popular ''Priceless'' campaign for MasterCard began running in 1997, the actor Billy Crudup has served as the voiceover announcer for the commercials but has never been seen on screen. That changed Sunday with an amusing spot that presented him incognito as a cashier at a gasoline station convenience store, delivering his lines in the same mellifluous tones he uses as an announcer.

It is all simply a buildup for CD leaving Crudup to be with Jordan Catalano. This breakup then flows into the inevitable MC commercial where Crudup pokes fun at himself for his girlfriend's departure to the arms of Jared Leto's fictional TV character. Wait, what?? No one else watches My so called life dvd's on saturday nights after eating a couple of chocolates.

Hard to take you seriously today, Zebra -- removing posts, posting twice, maybe thrice, talkin' about Jared Leto. Tough day for the Zebra.

Posting a comment on Blogger sucks though, so I feel your pain.

true Ace, true. Jakey Zeebs is fighting a war on multiple fronts this Friday. And the Russians are scorching the earth.
